Maker John Sutton

Literature. Silver Tumbler Cups were made from the mid-17th century onwards. They are made from thick gauge sheet silver which was hammered up so that the sides become thinner towards the top and the rounded base would have the greater weight. When they are knocked over they will automatically right themselves. A very useful drinking cup to use on board ship.


The silver cup is in good condition. The engraving is still sharp. Good patina. Stamped with a full set of English silver hallmarks.
